There are some Ke$ha songs that I never quite understood, but this is BY FAR one of my favorites. The song also features Detox Icunt, who is a local drag queen, here in West Hollywood. Detox has been involved in many spoof videos (one can be seen here), has a band “Transkuntinental”, and is one of the most talented queens out there (in my opinion). What an amazing opportunity for her, and hopefully this will bring her to an entirely new level, especially considering it’s such a great song. What do you think?
And below is Transkuntinental’s Promo video:

February 25th, 2012: This is a video of a bouncer, allegedly from the infamous Voyeur nightclub, punching and yelling gay slurs at a young gay male who is being held down by two men. The bald man is the alleged bouncer, although Voyeur is claiming that the man in from Fubar (another local gay bar). Voyeur is frequented by celebrities, but is also widely known as a gay bar in the community. Sadly, this is not the first time that an employee of Voyeur has been abusive to a gay person which makes many people feel that the claim of this man working at Fubar is inaccurate.
What’s even worse is the fact that this man has no authority to hold down a man who is claiming to be the victim and use excessive force. He is a civilian like you and me, and if punched, has the right to defend himself. Unfortunately, he could not due to the fact that he had two men holding him down with his hands behind his back. This seems rather unfair. He was taken out of the club because he had gotten into a fight. According to the victim being held down, he was the one who was injured in the fight and was trying to show them his face was “fucked up”, but they didn’t want to hear it.
“Look at my face man,” the victim says, “-they fucked me up.”
One of two men holding him down says: “Fuck your face. I don’t give a shit about your face.”
Victim: “Trust me please I didn’t start the shit. I was with my boyfriend. I’m a gay boy.”
Face down on the ground, he tries to look up at his captors. One of them says:
“Yeah well your a fuckin’ [unintelligible] … Stop fuckin’ struggling motherfucker. “
At that point the victim receives what appear to be a pair of punches, one to his back and one to the back of his head, by the winner in black.
“Stop resisting,” one of the men says. “Stay still motherfucker.”
Then one of the captors unleashes this: “Stop fuckin’ moving you cocksucker.”
Just then a security guard with a badge walks up, and one of the captors says, “Hey can we get some cuffs please.”
“Stay where you are motherfucker,” the victim is told. “Shut up.”

When I saw the title ”Want to date a gentleman? Head to West Hollywood: The top ten U.S. cities to find ‘sensitive’ men,” I literally laughed my ass off. Of course you’re bound to find a sensitive guy in WeHo; The town is overpopulated with gay men. I live in West Hollywood and yes I am gay. Although it is true that the entire city isn’t occupied by homosexuals, it is well-known that a good majority are gay.
Glamourous?! This has to be a mistake. Clearly the person who discovered these findings has never set foot in West Hollywood, CA. This is more of a place for women to find fags to hag, than the loves of their lives. Either way this proves that stereotypes are true:
1. Gay men are more sensitive than the average ‘Joe’
2. Women really are desperate and searching for love in all the wrong places

The president, Mr. Barack Obama made a visit to West Hollywood, CA today. Although I was initially upset about his visit, because most of the streets around my house were closed and a major traffic problem was headed my way, it ended up rather nice.
While taking a stroll down to CVS Pharmacy, my girlfriend and I happened to come to the corner where the president was going to be driving be in just a few minutes. He was leaving the House of Blues on Sunset Blvd. and headed to the new restaurant Fig & Olive on Melrose and La Cienega. Here is a video of the President of The United States, his entourage, and I believe, the entire West Hollywood Police Department.

Living in West Hollywood, I am very excited that Fairey and others have been commissioned to make this building more appealing and unique. I am also a huge fan of street art, so I may bit a bit biased.
Los Angeles Times - The new public library in West Hollywood isn’t expected to officially open until October, but at least one component of the complex is already garnering public attention: a new group of murals created by street artists Shepard Fairey, Retna and Kenny Scharf.
The outdoor murals are a joint project by the artists, the city of West Hollywood and the Museum of Contemporary Art. They can be found on the library’s parking structure, near the corner of Melrose Avenue and San Vicente Boulevard, across from the Pacific Design Center.
Fairey’s large-scale mural features a peace dove next to an elephant, both rendered in his signature style. You can view more photos of the near-finished artwork on Fairey’s website.
Fairey has made a point to explain that the tax payers are paying nothing for this, because he is not being paid to do the mural and he is using his own supplies. I’m sure residents will be even more thrilled to have such a creative library in the neighborhood as well as not have to pay a cent.
Retna has created a textual mural that incorporates strangely encrypted blue writing, which is said to be quotations from Salman Rushdie. Scharf’s mural, on yet another part of the building, features a colorful explosion of cartoon-like characters.
MOCA has chosen the artists for these murals and stands by the fact that it is not graffiti, because it was approved by them and creative expression by the artists.
The city of West Hollywood is paying for anti-UV and anti-graffiti coating, but the rest of the funding for the murals is coming from MOCA and the artists.
Okay, so we’re paying a little bit to protect the artwork. I’m totally okay with that. Having character in a neighborhood and making the library somewhere that more people will want to visit is a good idea in my book. I am looking forward to the new library as well as all of the aspects that will have come together to make more of a museum. The city has said that they plan on hosting these murals through July of 2012, so see them while they’re fresh!
It was barely noon in early December, and the sun was already setting as Thomas Landreth and Brett Kessler touched down in the Swedish mining town of Kiruna, a few hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle. A pale pink line underscored the horizon. Snow lay in pillowy drifts and weighed down the branches of the pine trees. Packs of huskies, lean and feral-looking, filled the crisp air with impatient yelps. Bundled up against the stinging cold, Landreth and Kessler clambered onto a waiting sled and, with a polite cry of “hey” from the driver, the dogs surged forward.
One evening earlier the couple, both 22, had stood on a stage in New York’s West Village for what was described as a “wedding and rehearsal cocktail,” at which they’d met their European counterparts— a lesbian couple from Poland and a gay male couple from Germany. The Europeans had married earlier that day on a Stockholm-New York SAS flight that was billed as the world’s first same-sex in-flight wedding, the result of a contest designed to exemplify Sweden’s progressive values. Also in attendance were around 30 reporters and the Swedish celebrity Efva Attling, best known in Europe for a hit 1981 pop ballad, “The Two of Us,” there to present each of the newlyweds with rings inscribed with the words from here to eternity from her eponymous jewelry line.
To celebrate their new status, the Europeans were promised a flashy menu of Brazilian blowouts, spray tans, nail appliques, and a visit to Christian Bale’s favorite spa (minus Christian Bale), courtesy of the New York City and West Hollywood tourism boards. By contrast, Landreth and Kessler would enjoy their conjugal rites in Sweden’s Icehotel, where the temperature doesn’t rise above 21 degrees Fahrenheit—so frigid that guests have to sleep in Arctic sleeping bags.
Needless to say, the Brazilian blowout has yet to reach Jukkäsjarvi, population 519, but no one travels to this small one-street town on the banks of the pristine Torne River to be pampered. They go for the Northern Lights and the ice (occasionally the ice goes to them—Jukkasjärvi’s talented ice-smiths supply pop-up ice bars as far afi eld as Tokyo and Dubai). Sometimes they even go to get married. “It was always going to be a destination wedding by default,” said Landreth, who had been discussing marriage with Kessler since last June. “But we’d always of thought Connecticut or D.C.” They didn’t anticipate their journey would involve sled dogs or a wedding banquet consisting of reindeer stew.
For their wedding night, the lovebirds chose a room inspired by the movie Tron, installed by British designers Ben Rousseau and Ian Douglas-Jones. The overall impression was of being trapped in an Atari video game. “We both embrace our inner geek,” said Kessler, adding that he and Landreth, students at UNC Chapel Hill, bonded over repeat viewings of Shaun of the Dead and Clerks 2. Similarly unfussy, the couple wore their snowsuits and boots during the ceremony. “We are here to celebrate love,” local minister Lise-Lott Wikholm told the congregation, before delivering a reading from Saint Paul. “It felt, in some senses, very binding,” said Kessler afterward. “We wish everyone we knew could have been here.” And with that, he and Landreth were ushered into a sled and driven off to their frosty honeymoon suite by two reindeer lucky enough to have escaped lunch.
I love that gay marriage is now going global! It has been such a long and hard battle for gay couples to first gain rights as individuals, but now be receiving rights as a couple too. This is a huge step in the right direction for the gay community. The more marriages we see, means the more people are willing to accept the fact that gay couples are here to stay and will continue to fight for their right…to marry. Congratulations to the happy, and cold, couple!
